This PPE distribution form:
A PPE distribution form is a document that is used to track and distribute personal protective equipment (PPE) within a company or organization. The form lists the type and quantity of PPE that is available, as well as the name and contact information of the person responsible for distributing the PPE.
This form is important for ensuring that all employees have the proper PPE for their job duties and that PPE is being used and distributed correctly.
When selecting PPE, all the specific hazards encountered in the workplace and work practice must be considered; comfort should also be factored into the selection process.
All PPE supplied for use at a workplace must comply with the applicable Australian standards and regulatory obligations. If there is ever any uncertainty with PPE standards, confirmation must be sought from the supplier, other competent people (or emergency managers if emergency PPE is to be used).
PPE should not restrict movement, vision or interfere with the function of any other PPE that is required to be worn. Wherever possible, workers who are required to wear PPE should be consulted on the selection process and where appropriate, pilot trials should be established to optimize the selection process.
PPE should be distributed to workers based on need and the distribution needs to be fair and equitable. The workers should receive training on how to use and wear the PPE correctly and the manufacturer’s instructions must always be followed. A PPE request form should be completed for specialized personal protective equipment PPE.
This PPE distribution form has provisions for the following aspects of PPE.
